Hi,

Enjoyed this...

 
Function WordValue(Input)
	WordTotal = 0
	Input = UCase(Input)
	for i = 1 to len(Input)
		Char = Mid(Input, i, 1)
		LetterValue = Asc(Char) - 64
		WordTotal = WordTotal + LetterValue
		response.write LetterValue & "<br/>"
	next

	WordValue = WordTotal
End Function



TestWord = "ff"

if len(TestWord) > 5 then
	response.write "WordTooLong"
elseif len(TestWord) < 3 then
	response.write "WordTooShort"
elseif WordValue(TestWord) = 30 then
	response.write "Success: " & TestWord & " works!"
else
	response.write "WordNot30"
end if

I think you may need to do more error checking for non-alpha's maybe...
